Policies and Procedures
The City of Lubbock Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to assist you with your special event needs. This form briefly outlines the different park requirements and city permits that you may need as you organize your event. Should you have any questions, please call the Special Events Coordinator at (806) 775-2669 or (806) 775-2689.

Park Requirements
  • Complete the Special Events Reservation Form and return it to the Parks Office within one week of tentatively booking your special event needs. Your reservation will be considered tentative and will not be confirmed until this form has been received in the Parks Office. If you fail to submit this form within one week, there is a possibility that you may lose your booking to another group. This form can be submitted to Parks and Recreation up to one year in advance of an event.
  • Payment should be received in the Parks Office at least one-week prior to your event. A separate check for litter deposits may be turned in on the last working day before the special event, and it can be picked up after 12:00 Noon on the first working day after the event as long as staff has confirmed that the area is clean.
  • On more elaborate special events, a meeting between the Parks staff and the event organizer at the site of the event may be necessary to coordinate the setup for the event.
  • Party house and park shelter reservations are a separate process. Call 775-2687 to make your reservations.
  • No alcoholic beverages are allowed on Park property.
  • No vehicles are allowed on Park property.
  • Sale of food and merchandise on Park property is only allowed by contract between the vendor and the Parks and Recreation Department with Parks receiving 20% of all proceeds (before expenses).
  • Occasionally, a special event may require Parks and Recreation Board and City Council approval. This process could take from four to six weeks. The Parks Board meets on the last Tuesday of each month (no meetings in July or December). Deadline to be placed on the Parks Board agenda is two weeks prior to the meeting date. Upon recommendation by the Parks and Recreation Board, the item would then be placed on the next available City Council meeting for approval.
